Dr. Beth, I am a junior in high school and I have played girls’ basketball since middle school.  My parents have been really supportive and take a lot of pride in my being an athlete.  I have really lost interest in playing basketball, but I don’t know how to tell my parents.  They will be crushed. Should I keep playing even though I don’t enjoy it anymore? Or if I don’t, how do I tell my parents I want to quit playing?
